Manitoba

Manitoba extends to an area of more than a quarter of a million square miles and it’s home to around one and a quarter million people, many of whom are of British, Irish, German or Ukrainian descent. French then British traders established Winnipeg, the capital and largest city in the province, as a fur trading post in the early 18th century and its diverse modern economy is now one of the nation’s success stories.

Five clubs – St Charles, Pine Ridge, Norwood, Winnipeg Hunt Club and Elmhurst – were represented at the first meeting of the Manitoba Golf Association in 1915, seven years before women in the province established their own governing body, the Manitoba Ladies Golf Association. Both associations continued to serve their members for more than eighty years until they eventually merged in 2004 to form Golf Manitoba.

Manitoba is not exactly overflowing with quality golf courses but the layout at Pine Ridge, one of the province’s oldest clubs, is an old Tom Bendelow-design that was remodeled by Donald Ross when he visited Winnipeg in 1919 and it’s widely regarded as one of the province’s premier 18-hole tracks.

Granite Hills

4th Manitoba - Best in Area

Granite Hills Golf Club lies within a 320-acre property on the shores of Lac du Bonnet. Plans for the layout were drawn up in 1983 but it took another twenty-four years before the course opened for play.

Quarry Oaks (Quarry & Oaks)

5th Manitoba - Best in Area

Quarry Oaks is a 27-hole golf facility featuring three distinct nines, with the Quarry and Oaks loops comprising the original course – that’s not to say the newer Desert nine should be disregarded as it’s a fine alternative option.

Bridges

Situated twenty-five miles southwest of downtown Winnipeg, Bridges Golf Course is laid out on either side of the meandering La Salle River, with water coming into play at more than half the holes on the scorecard.
